The International Center for Applied Studies in Information Technology (ICASIT) celebrates its 10th anniversary at a luncheon today. Housed in The Institute of Public Policy, ICASIT has received more than $5 million in grants and contracts–primarily for helping organizations leverage information technology applications.

ICASIT has worked with more than 70 organizations from around the world. Although the center has projects in more than 20 countries, its local presence is also very active. Recalling a recent note from Henry Azclar, president of Internet startup company artisannet.com, ICASIT director Steve Ruth says, “[Azclar] told us that the web evaluations we did for his company were worth $100,000 to his bottom line–that kind of payoff is what ICASIT has always stood for.”

President Alan Merten; Provost Peter Stearns; Ann Armstrong, president of the Center for Innovative Technology; and other ICASIT colleagues from the academy and industry are expected to attend the celebration.
